Antarctic Adventure

In: Fun Times, Technology

This was the first computer game I got addicted to back in 1985 with my first MSX computer. Found a MSX emulator for the N900 and immediately remembered this game. I found this video on YouTube with a funny documentary on the game.

Cadillac – Just Twist

In: Fun Times

Alghanim has this twisted and bronzified Cadillac at their showroom. Most visitors paid more attention to this old beauty than the newer offerings. Its pretty cool to have these antiques around. I guess Alghanim can afford to with such a spacious showroom.
